Take 5 results are the winning numbers in the New York lottery game called Take 5, states the New York Lottery. At 11:21 p.m. nightly, an auditor observes as someone selects five balls from 39 numbered balls in a specially designed machine. Results are announced on statewide media.
There are four prize levels, and the cash awards are calculated by dividing the number of winners at a level into the money available for that level, notes the New York Lottery. If no one wins the first prize, the money is added to the money for the second prize, and the second-prize winners share the money equally. Take Five prize money is not carried forward to the next day's drawing.
